Bounty Hound What makes a new song a folk song? (1710* d) RE: What makes a new song a folk song? 16 Sep 14


Phil, sorry to cause offence, but just to point out that Jim was quoting you first, saying that at least two other people could not hear the words, and I was merely correcting him as what you both said was that you could hear most of the words.

Jim,
'you are being selective in what has been said and you are falling back on the old get-out-of-jail-free card of blaming the listener.
I'm being selective! you said 'At least two others have commented at not being able to hear the words' and what the people you were 'quoting' actually said was 'I could hear most of the words'

Then you say 'Please don't tell me what I know and what motivates me - it "cheapens" what you have to say' haven't I said something similar to you earlier today with reference to you comment about the 'demise' of folk/rock!

You really can't have it all ways Jim, perhaps it is time that you accepted that with the best will in the world, you don't know everything, you have no right to comment on anyone's taste, other than your own, and probably most important, that despite the acknowledged work you've done, you don't own the tradition, and if others wish to treat it in a way that you may not approve of, then that is absolutely fine, because it is their tradition too and you have absolutely no right to say anything further than it's not to my taste!

Nuff said, I've got a life to get on with!
